More than just a martial arts program!

Most people have heard of Karate, Kung-fu, and Tae Kwon Do, but Brazilian Capoeira is a bit of a new concept. This 400-year-old martial art has a lot more to offer than your run-of-the-mill karate class. At Brazilian Capoeira we pride ourselves on building strong bodies, strong character, and a strong family. Take a couple of minutes to browse this site and see what our programs can do for you. You'll be amazed at what you can do!

What makes capoeira different from other martial arts?

One of the first things you'll notice is that class isn't all about just kicking and punching, or learning cool acrobatic movements and self-defense techniques. Our curriculum focuses a lot on personal character development, goal setting, and leadership training. Students report greater self-confidence, better performance in school and at work, along with their increases in physical fitness.

Summer Deal Capoeira Maculelê Decatur is offering beginners ONE MONTH FREE of Capoeira!


Get in the best shape of your life and have a great time doing it!

A great body, strong lean muscles, and unshakeable confidence are just some of the results you'll see training capoeira. Capoeira classes offer a high-energy workout that melts fat and works every muscle in your body.

Give our intro program a try and you'll see how capoeira is so much more than just a martial arts class. Sure, it's a great workout, but that's just the beginning. Capoeira is also a lot of fun! Actually enjoying your workout is key to getting the most out of it and sticking with it. This isn't just a group of people standing around kicking a bag or dancing to music. You're constantly learning new things and challenging yourself in new and exciting ways. You'll see real progress and will never get bored with this.

What if you could double your confidence by this time next month?

How would that make a difference in your work, social, and family life? This Brazilian martial arts program will help you to gain control of your own body. You will be AMAZED at what you can get your body to do. Gaining control of your own body is a big part of developing unshakeable confidence that will impact all other areas of your life.

What fears are holding you back? How could greater confidence help you to reach the goals you're really after?
